This poor mascot can't stop falling in car ad shoot

White Bear slips, tumbles on ice while Minnesota Gopher looks on

Put a polar bear on ice, what could possibly go wrong? A lot, apparently.

In these outtakes from White Bear Mitsubishi in White Bear Lake, Minn., the dealer's famous mascot, general manager Richard Herod III and the University of Minnesota's mascot Goldy are trying to film a commercial for some cars.

White Bear, however, can't stay on its paws...again and again and again.

Goldy even seems to be taunting White Bear at one point, zipping around on sneakers while the bear can barely stay upright.

The face-plant at the end really seals this slippery episode for poor White Bear. Hopefully it's got a lot of padding, otherwise that unfortunate series of events is going to leave several marks.
